Obsession rose looks to be very promising! It seems to have it all;

  • Beautiful scarlet red blooms
  • Nice fragrance
  • Healthy glossy foliage (Disease Resistant)

It's already been named 'Rose of the year" so you know it must be good!

Floribunda roses are known for their endurance in the garden, producing lots of season long bloom. Flowers are usually produced in clusters, making it easy to pick a bouquet from a single spray.

This one has a unique red color, that will be a standout in any garden. It grows only to about 3 1/2' tall, and spreads out about as wide.

I can already picture a circle of them surrounding my white three tier fountain in the center of one of my gardens....

I think it could become a very popular landscape rose, but beautiful as well in the garden, or used as a hedge, and lets not forget cut flowers!
